"We Will Always Love You: A GRAMMY Salute To Whitney Houston" is set to air this Friday, Nov. 16 at 9 p.m. on CBS.

The special, which was taped last month at Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE, features artists paying homage to the six-time GRAMMY winner with performances from Yolanda Adams, Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson, Usher, and CeCe Winans.

Halle Berry, Taraji P Henson, LL COOL J and Britney Spears will present a special collection of clips that celebrate Houston's life and artistry through performances and interviews. "We Will Always Love You" will include highlights of nearly all of Houston's GRAMMY telecast performances, her classic performance of the national anthem at Super Bowl XXV in 1991, and her first-ever television appearance on "The Merv Griffin Show" in the early '80s.

The first-ever definitive single disc collection of Houston's greatest hits, "I Will Always Love You — The Best Of Whitney Houston," was released Tuesday, Nov. 13, and features 18 tracks, including two never-before-released songs.
